She’s the woman of my dreams, but the beast within me wants her dead.
Other than my mysterious and possibly fatal medical condition, my life is simple.
I wear my police uniform with pride, and protect my city with integrity. I make sure my dad and sister are safe and happy. And I love Sylvie.
She’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman. Crazy smart, adorably nerdy, beautiful, and literally the girl next door. However, four words uttered from her lips spin my world into chaos. Despite her betrayal, I still want her. In my life, in my heart, in my bed. But I’d never tell her that.
My anger awakens a beast that grapples for control. I can’t give in, or nothing will ever be the same. When a secret organization concealing heinous crimes against humanity comes for us, nothing will stop me from protecting Sylvie. If they get their hands on me, though, I’ll suffer a fate far worse than death.
I have no choice but to unleash the deadly Grizzly inside of me and trust Sylvie will guide me home before it’s too late.
Point of view:
1st person. Alternating between John & Sylvie.
This is the 3rd book in the Infinitum series. While John & Sylvie’s relationship is completely covered here – due to other plots & worldbuilding I think this book is best enjoyed after books 1 & 2. Large parts of this book are also concurrent to events in Code Name: Timberwolf & Code Name: Sparrow. There’s also a prequel novella, John, that offers some insight into events that shaped him into who is is at the start of Code Name: Grizzly.
Mowery offers a great mix of sci-fi/paranormal, suspense, action, and romance. The first half is heavily focused on John & Sylvie’s relationship and how Sylvie’s secrets impact that. Both John and Sylvie have been through so much and I was in tears at several points.
There’s also lots of mystery and suspense as the team tries to stay one step ahead of Infinitum, rescue captives, and prevent more abductions. Lots of heart wrenching loss.
There’s a lovely HFN for John & Sylvie – but things with Infinitum definitely aren’t over. A big surprise has a huge impact on everyone and I can’t wait for Garrett’s book to see how that plays out.
